Gearbox Magazine

So I was hesitant to post it up, but thought this was kind of cool because it always feels good to get any sort of recognition, big or small when you put a lot of time into something (of the 40+ pics I sent the ones he chose were pretty funny, IMHO):

Chris Essman: Road-tripping in the Race Car GEARBOX MAGAZINE

Guy stumbled across my projects, read some of my tech posts and asked me if I would be interested in an interview. Said why not and didnt think anything would come out of it, instead he published that and requested at least two more installments as both projects come together.

Brian Driggs is a great guy and I have nothing but good things to say about working with him, and look forward to following up with it in the future.

Hoping it'll bring more attention to the Fit community at large, and maybe some of the projects we don't hear about here will come out of the wood work!

Maybe it'll help bring me some more projects to fund the cars, and perhaps some sponsors down the road as I see results at the track. One can dream.

I'd like to think my father would've appreciated this. Shame he couldn't be around to see everything thats happened the last few months and whats hopefully yet to come next couple seasons.

At this time I'd like to thank everyone who has had a hand in this, bounced ideas off me, gave advice or support. There's just to many to list, and really I think the article is more for everyone whos been a part of it rather then just me.

Great job Chris. FF has already has a lot of attention but now maybe for more power options because they said it could not be done but you and others proved it can.

Just read the whole article... congrats on the recognition! It's well deserved. (sorry to read about your father, I'm sure he'd be proud)
